[laughter] he said to me you can never underestimate the complete advantages of utter in copper and stability. -- and copper instability. -- incomprehensibility. i was in london when the phone hacking scandal started. it is amazing to see two things. first of all, how old fashioned an incredibly irrelevant the debate between old media and new media is. 168 years on paper. an incredible institution in the british press that was acting in ways that would have been utterly disgusting coming from anywhere in the immediate universe. it is new media that played a huge part in bringing the news of the world down so fast part -- . -- news of the world down so fast. it is amazing what is
